Isack Hadjar said “it was a really good progression” during the Abu Dhabi test with Hitech.
The Frenchman drove for Hitech alongside Jak Crawford in the test after battling for the FIA Formula 3 championship for the British team
Hadjar explained when asked by InsideF2 that he is delighted with the progress he made over the three day test.
“It didn’t start the best way, we had to change the engine after just two laps so it’s not ideal but then it was ok to make the rest of the three days without any problems.
“I completed every lap possible and I’m happy with the pace on both short and long runs so I think it was a really good progression through the three days.”
Hadjar is eagerly anticipating next season after the teams strong performances early in the season, especially with Jüri Vips.
“I have a really good team, they have performed really well at the start of the year with Jüri.
“He was performing especially in qualifying, it was a bit more tricky in the race but I know they have a strong race pace.
“We have a good team mate so we can push each other to the top so I’m really confident.”
The 18-year-old has the potential to race for Hitech in Formula 2 next season but said nothing is official with his future yet.
“No it hasn’t been announced yet but everyone knows it already, it’s not official.”
The Hitech driver went agonisingly close to winning the Formula 3 championship before finishing fourth during his debut FIA F3 campaign.
The Frenchman said he enjoyed a superb first half of the season but the final few rounds were very poor by his lofty standards.
“I had a good first half and it just didn’t go to plan, it was just a nightmare, to be honest in the last three races.
“Just so much pace and only a few points, we deserve much more but it wouldn’t have changed much, to be honest, I’m in F2 and ready to perform.”
